The visuals on this are pretty amazing, but I don't like the superman-parody aspect of it very much. I don't agree with the consensus of 'superfantastic'.

Everyone seems to focus a lot on the crucifixion, but of course, other than it's specific function as the "ultimate" passover sacrifice, the death of Jesus is simply a way of thinking about God's work.

The true nature of his sacrifice is to patiently endure the rejection, contempt, and thanklessness of his children for countless generations. Though he has good things planned for each child, things that will bring him joy as well, he instead has to discard those expectations in favor of walking that child away from whatever drug, idol, or sin they choose instead.

If God suffers, it is the pain of unimaginable loneliness, and to know that at the end of that loneliness, noone will truly understand or care what he has endured, but will instead focus solely on their own benefit and future, demanding of him why their own existence hasn't been perfect.

I don't believe that Jesus suffered because he was afraid of dying. I believe he suffered because he knew once the method of redemption was finalized, that some children would be lost forever, unable to accept their own need for him.

It was pretty damn good, but I agree with secret.

Parody can only do.. so much, you know.

*Ahem* This has to do WHAT with the comic slightly? Sure it's Jesus, but honestly, that was very random and... pointless, I didn't even read the whole damn thing, it would have wasted even more of my time, that I spend... doing nothing.

You're a noob. You don't know Zeku. He's from the Mellowfish days.

Hmmm...

What do you suppose the chances are of Blarg catching the reference and knowing who Mellowfish was if he/she/it(?) is new?

When I see comics like this, some small, impishly perverse part of myself hopes that some future civilization, having rebuilt itself after some cataclysmic event, will misinterpret this comic as scripture thus paving the way for Marlon Brando to be worshiped as a deity.

He could always Google it.

But I didn't really intend that to be explanatory.

I totally forgot this, but I registered on the day of the 'Churchbot, Transform!" thread and my first post was in that thread. Awesome.
